from dress to vest!

before deconstruction

i bought this dress at savers a while back, but it's obviously pretty big and bulky. however, i couldn't turn it down due to the awesome floral pattern and the amazing handpainted ceramic buttons...

button details

what was i going to make from the dress? i knew immediately, a nice tiny vest and maybe a matching skirt from the excess fabric. here's an in-progres shot


and the final product! i used one of my favorite buttons (pictured above) to be the clincher of the vest.


after debating for a while i decided that a matching skirt would be over kill... and there was so much of the fabric! the idea then sparked to make curtains. the best part is that the curtain that's on the door has a ginormous pocket on it for secret treasures.
